Hey! That's the opposite of what you said!

In 2008 Louisiana passed their attempt at the Guinness world record for misnomers.  The Louisiana Science Education Act allowed teachers to supplant the teaching of confirmed science with whatever fantasy they wished, including creationism.  It’s like the leaders we elected think we’re idiots.  Next on the ballot is the Louisiana Children’s Happiness Act which will outlaw toys, and the Louisiana Party and Inebriation Act which will ban the celebration of Mardi Gras.

The leading opponent of the creationism measure was a very thorough and talented high school student named Zack Kopplin.  He has now designated March 19 as a day of action against this legislation.

It’s a sad world when we have to fight our leaders to get them to keep schools about education and to keep our standards at the minimum standard we should expect.
